  • Wonderful Vacation!

    "My husband, myself and my parents along with our two four legged friends stayed here for a week towards the end of September and had a wonderful, relaxing and amazing vacation. The property is simply beautiful! So peaceful, wonderful views, great access to the ocean. The home itself is also perfect, with plenty of space and everything you need right there. It is located close enough to the town of Bar Harbor and to Acadia National Park to be able to see everything you would want to see and experience, while being able to enjoy your own quiet piece of paradise at the end of the day. We hated to leave after our wonderful week there, but am looking forward to hopefully being able to go back again to enjoy this beautiful property next year."

  • Great vacation week in this house

    "We just came back home after spending a week in this house. The house was just as described: well furnished and equipped. 3 bedrooms accommodated 7 people comfortably. Kitchen had all we needed. Electronics worked. Etc. WiFi Internet was pretty slow, Verizon phones had no reception, AT&T had good reception. Owner was very friendly and provided detailed descriptions and instructions about all aspects of our stay. Staying in the lakefront house has a lot of advantages. Hodgdon Pond is really beautiful and quiet, we barely saw or heard any neighbors. We used boats that are provided, it is easy to paddle around; went swimming and fishing (bought licenses). I also suggest taking a canoe out at night, I bet you haven't seen that many stars in the sky. My kids loved gazing for shooting stars and we were rewarded periodically even though it wasn't a meteorite shower time. I'm not going to list all attractions of Acadia NP that we visited, but want to recommend visiting Ship Harbor. It is an easy flat trail that runs along very pure, very "Maine" shore line and there is not a lot of people. It is about 15 minutes away from the house."

  • This house is BETTER than described.

    "Every member of our family of 5 (mom, dad and kids ages 11, 11, and 14) adored this house. It is beautifully situated and decorated. The kitchen is well equipped. The owner is delightful. We loved the view and the walk to Thurstons. It is easy to get to the market in Southwest Harbor. It is a reasonable (but not short) drive to all of the activities in Acadia. It was spotless, roomy and comfortable."

  • Our Winter Retreat

    "We have enjoyed Paul's cottage for our last seven February vacations. Mt Desert Island in the winter is fantastic! A day cross-country skiing or snowshoeing in Acadia is scenic and beautifully quiet. Returning to the cottage each afternoon and enjoying the fireplace, warm beverages, water views, sunsets and seabirds visible right outside the cottage window is heavenly. Sleeping in the loft bedroom, watching the moon, stars and lighthouse beacons is as romantic as it gets. Paul's cottage has everything you need, Kathy is extremely helpful, and we will keep returning to this amazing location. The pictures show it all except the tranquility of winter. We do recommend Paul's cottage to our friends but only if they promise not to compete for our week!"

Acadia Travel Tips

Rocky Coastlines Abound by Acadia Vacation Rentals

Land and sea come together on the rocky coastline of Maine. Spend a week in summer enjoying the sights and sounds at Acadia vacation rentals. A spacious house with the ideal view of Bar Harbor, Bass Harbor or Somes Sound can be yours. You can find the perfect vacation rental with VRBO for your family reunion or family vacation. Acadia rentals offer you the chance to prepare your own fresh lobster dinners on your private deck or watch the sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean while having your breakfast. There are plenty of amenities to make your stay more enjoyable, such as comfortable beds, large living areas and room to relax indoors or out.

Acadia National Park is Minutes Away From Acadia Lodging

You and your family can visit Acadia National Park to see the 54 square miles of Mount Desert Island. This fantastic island is the largest rock-based island in the Atlantic Ocean region. These rounded domes have been around for centuries with summits that are clustered with pine, spruce and fir trees as well as a profound profusion of wildflowers. Bird-lovers will find a large variety of birds within the park’s boundaries so do not forget to bring your binoculars. Guests of Acadia rentals can visit the park throughout the year with the exception of a two-mile section along the ocean during the winter.

With a fully equipped kitchen, you will be able to pack a picnic lunch so that you can hike some of the 125 miles of trails. If you are so inclined, there are horse-drawn carriage rides that are available from mid-June to early October. Otherwise, you can indulge your passion for fresh sea air by biking or taking a walking tour. Park rangers are on-hand from late spring to early fall to provide information on the area. After a delicious dinner, bring the family to a campfire program where you could learn about marine life, history or wildlife. You can even take a cruise around Frenchman Bay and the Cranberry Islands to get a great perspective from the water. A seven-day pass is the perfect accompaniment to your wonderful Acadia lodging reservation.

Acadia Travel Means Shopping and Restaurants

What could be better than a fresh lobster dinner while you are on vacation in Maine? You may decide you do not want to cook this feast yourself but dine out at one of the many restaurants in the area. There will be many that fit anyone’s budget and they do not all serve seafood. The restaurants in the Down East and Acadia region feature fresh ingredients with simple to extravagant cuisine. If you tire of seafood, you can find pasta, pizza, steak, and lighter fare such as salads and soup. One of the most popular and well-known restaurants in the area is the Atlantic Brewing Company in Bar Harbor. The estate is also located in Bar Harbor so you can see how the beer there is made.

Shopping is another leisure activity that can be enjoyed while staying in Acadia vacation rentals. Whether you are looking for a gift or want a memento of your time together in this amazing place, you can find it. If you have come away without the proper clothing or just want something new for your wardrobe, visit the Black Sheep Trading Company. This great store has hand-woven sweaters, moccasins, slippers or sheepskin items. If you want to indulge in a sweet confection to top your morning English muffin, visit Nervous Nellie’s Jams and Jellies. Maine crafts are abundant at Maine-ly Made Gifts where you can bring home items that remind you of the sea. Bookstores, artisans and artists all display their wares in the Acadia area.

Choose the Best Time to Visit Acadia

Many people love to visit the seashore in the summer when the weather is at its most cooperative. You need to plan ahead to secure the Acadia vacation rental that will provide you with a great view and space that you want for your family. There are many homes, seaside cottages and condos to choose from. If you are not committed to a summer vacation, you can find some great deals in the off-season. Whenever you are able to visit the Acadia area though, you will find a flawless accommodation to rejuvenate your body.
